|Fall: the best running season here (next to spring, summer and winter)|
1.5 warmup, 6x 4minutes I pace/2 minutes recovery , Goal Interval pace= 6:09/mile
Rating this 9/10 on effort. Really should do this on a flat stretch, but daylight is limited and I didn't give myself time to drive to run the flat areas. COLD but no frost.

I will be winding down my training for the November 20th half marathon. I have spent the last 6 weeks or so rebuilding my mileage base, mostly in the long run, since the 5-15k training ended in mid September. Truthfully, it only took a little shifting around of miles - and the legs are generally a bit happier going slower one more day a week. It did feel like I had been "missing out on something" after I had my first run over 2 and a half hours in who-knows-how-long. I like the feeling of being spent by duration, not just effort in speed. I spent an evening pouring over my log trying to compare last years stats with this year's and finally quit. I am where I am, and God will handle it for me.
Time to reduce the running a bit if I want a good race. I aim to taper for 10-14 days. Feeling nervous that I can't match the calculators...time to re-read the last bold sentence..over and over again.
